    Pulled up from Davy Jones's locker, Monkey Island 2 Special Edition: LeChuck's Revenge breathes new life into a classic while at the same time setting a new standard for adventure gaming.

    Classic adventure fans and newbies to the genre alike will fall in love with the brilliance of Monkey Island at what many would call its peak. One of the best games of all time is magically even better.

    If there's a game on this week's list that I'm going to put the most time into revisiting and replaying, it's this one.

    The version to get, I know that I will be replaying this more than once on the iPad. The lack of the more helpful verb system and nicer 3d effects separates this from the PC and console version, but SE 2 is still more than playable on the iPad.

    Fans will appreciate the colorful commentary from the franchise creators, while those intimidated by the adventure games of the past will find comfort in the simplified controls, object highlighting and hint system.

    It's one of the best games available for the system. Don't bother with anything else - just sit back, relax, and keep an eye out for three-headed monkeys.

    Oh Monkey Island 2, you will always have my heart and expecially on iOS (iPad), now I can play and reminisce i hi-res, with a vamped up rerecorded soundtrack (the way it should really be!). Thank you Lucasarts for bringing this to us, now sign Ron to do another Monkey game on iOS, it will be a HUGE hit I tell you! Full Review »
